Wonderful Nature Stewards
Sue is a retired nurse and Roy a retired physician – admitting to me that one never fully retires from such professions. They are involved in their church’s Climate Action Committee, with Roy also being a member of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment. Furthermore, the Clines are active and keen Fraser Valley Conservancy (FVC) Nature Stewards. When they moved to this homestead, they knew how special this slice of nature was. Although their surroundings are becoming more developed, they have had the honour of spotting much wildlife here, including beavers, herons, and eagles. So, when the Clines were introduced to the FVC at the 2018 Abbotsford Agrifair, they saw the possibilities that participating in our Nature Stewards program could bring.
“It has given us a sense of accountability. Every decision we now make regarding the property, we ask ourselves ‘is this being a good nature steward or not?’” – The Clines
